Thompson, by inches, takes 100-lap race in eventful night at the
LoanMart Madera Speedway
By Ronald Montez/The Madera Tribune
When it comes to preparing for races at the LoanMart Madera Speedway, it's all about making
adjustments - minor or major ones - week in and week out.
Whether it's fine-tuning the car itself, figuring out how to properly maneuver on the sometimes
unpredictable track, or even testing out a new racing strategy against quality competition, that's what
having an eight-month season allows drivers and their crew members to do.
For Rick Thompson, that significant amount of time, dedication and attention to detail paid dividends for
him and the Thompson Motorsales Racing Team on Saturday night (September 26) in Race No. 7 of the
MavTV televised LoanMart Open Late Model Series 100-lap (split 50) main.
In front of the watchful eyes of zestful fans, Thompson beat out points leader Buddy Shepherd by the
slimmest of margins (0.017 time differential) to earn his first LoanMart Open Late Model 100-lap victory
of the season and career.
"It means the world," Thompson said of his hard-fought victory that saw him assume the lead with just
four laps to go. "This team has worked so hard this year and we've come up short. Earlier in the year, we
lost one like this. We got second by a nose, so to win one by a nose is just awesome."
One of Thompson's many supporters on hand included his brother Kevin, the defending MST champion.
"I'm so happy for him," Kevin said after the race in the pit area. "We've really poured a lot into this year.
We got a new car for us and we've been working on it. We've been getting a little closer every week and this
week, we were about as good as all the cars out there."
Heading into the main, it was hard to ignore Shepherd and his track record-breaking qualifying time of
"There was only one car out there faster than us and that was the No. 22," Kevin said of Shepherd, who
also has two main wins on the season. "It's hard to beat that car."
For Kevin, his brother's win was a significant one on many levels.
"It's big for our team," Kevin said. "We're working on some sponsors for next year, so this is a great win for
us. To come out here as a lower budget team Click here for more
